We loved the lobby and historic charm, wonderful breakfast, great location where you can walk to everything and delicious restaurants near by. The rooms were large, comfy and beautiful. Overall I would stay here again and recommend the hotel. They don't have dual temperature control so without AC we were very uncomfortable while sleeping. We opened our window and it does get chilly at night but we were at ground level facing an alley way therefore no breeze. We requested a fan which helped but it was loud.
Location, view At checkin, Roger sat us down and energetically told us our room was not ready (we were early) and suggested we upgrade. I said no, so he asked me if we "really wanted" the room we had reserved. I explained we were tired from the long trip and asked if he could watch our bags and we would return later. He persisted in excitedly selling the upgrade. At checkout, no one could explain why I was charged 40 dollars more than what was listed on the bill. (The visa receipt did not match the folio) Of course it was the 10 percent charge at checkout that does appear in the booking email. These games were surprising at an spg hotel. .Everyone Was very nice while they created a sense of confusion that (of course) costs the traveler money. (I am sure worse for those who speak no spanish).
Excellent customer service
For us it was a "new experience" as it was our first time to Cusco. Get to know new place to stay Given the facilities and location and that it really caters for tourists, very much over priced
Attentive staff like I've never seen before. Taking care of every need and going above and beyond to make you happy. The hotel is a little old and could probably use a face lift.
Just Okay hotel. Not too pricy, and in a fairly good location. the restaurant in the hotel was also nice and satisfying. Unlike all other hotels I stayed in Peru the Wi-Fi in rooms was in additional charge although my understanding at the time or reservation was that Wi-Fi will be offered as a complimentary service, not only in the shared space but also in room. Also, all others hotel offered complimentary two bottles of water due to poor water quality, however in this hotel the bottles were offered was an extra charge which was also disappointing. There was a heater in the room but it wasn't working. The socket was burnt and unusable.
Hotel is built around a series of beautiful courtyards. It has a good location. Good service.
Aranwa was truly a beautiful hotel/spa. We spent 5 days here and really enjoyed walking the grounds and finding new things to explore each day. Being located not far from Urubamba, we were also able to take day trips to explore the salt mines, Moray and Ollantaytambo.. For anyone who wants to pamper themselves, this is definitely a place to consider.
